“Through BIAV’s educational events and resources,

I am able to share all I’ve learned with others, so

they, too, can get the much-needed help they

deserve. If it were not for my daughter’s strength

and the support of BIAV, I don’t know that we

would be in the place we are today.”

~ Kelly Lang, mother of Olivia Lang
